Impressive Video Shows Liverpool's Pressing Against Arsenal Was Absolutely Relentless

Impressive Video Shows Liverpool's Pressing Against Arsenal Was Absolutely Relentless

Liverpool's performance against Arsenal has been praised as one of the season's best so far - and it is all thanks to their intense pressing.

The Reds emerged 3-1 winners against Arsenal and it means they have started their Premier League season with three wins out of three.

A congested fixture list means teams are more likely to tire quicker this season, but nobody has told Jurgen Klopp's men.

NBC's analysis on Monday night focused on their desire and determination to get the ball back from the Gunners, who attempted to play out from defence.

Any loose balls were immediately won by Liverpool who continued to force Arsenal into mistakes they could capitalise on.

"It's part of the game that top players don't want to do - particularly when you're champions and have won everything in the last couple of years," one pundit commented. "But this continues to be so impressive.

"Just imagine how hard it is for Arsenal to get the ball down and combine, to build up, because anything loose... look at how many red shirts are attracted to the ball, they snuff it out and end up winning possession back."

Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are one of the world's best attacking trios, but their work rate does not differ from that of their teammates.

"In some teams there are some players to win the ball back," a second pundit continued. "Then you have your skillful players and it's like 'when we win it back, we'll give it to them'.

"Liverpool, every player does it at the same level, that's the most unique and impressive thing.

"Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino are probably as good at it as anyone else on the team."

Arsenal did take the lead in the game through Alexandre Lacazette after a mistake from Andy Robertson.

But things seem to have calmed down between the pair.

"I was not harsh!" Klopp told Goal. "I came to the microphone and I did not see [the comments] I only heard them through a speaker and I heard 'sloppy something.'

"In that moment I misunderstood obviously so no problem. I just asked did he say? And he didn't say so it is all fine."
